I think the stock wheels can look alright. I made some slight modifications to mine 2 years ago.

Black with a chrome lip Dont know









I usually hate black wheels but they look great against the lapis blue.


I like old split rims but mainly on the 964s.
Trouble with the Beta's is the centres look tiny. RH Turbo P's look better as the spokes go to the rim.

Another vote for standard here though. Thumb

Turbo Twist with outer rim silver looks really good IMO.

Agreed; and I'm not particularly big fan of black wheels, either (although that seems to be changing slowly).

Standard turbo alloys.

You might try Weiss Gold as a colour as it'd be a good contrast to the Blue paint.

Standard wheels re finished in a very light silver. Gt3' look horrid and don't suit the car and the BBS look........not so good imo.

I think sport techno’s look really good especially if a turbo has the aero kit, otherwise stick with the standard turbo wheels. Think the 996 turbo is very wheel sensitive.

So for comparison:




GT3 turbo size wheels:















Hollows (these are darker than std):








BBS LM's:








996 18" GT3 wheels:
